Sunday Salon: Happy Blogoversary to Me!

4 years old!

Join me in a piece of cake to celebrate the 4th anniversary of My Two Blessings! 

To celebrate I bought myself a couple of new journals.  One is a beautiful new journal from Peter Pauper Press with artistry by Josephine Wall.  I love her art. Her arts speaks to me and is so colorful and imaginative.

The other because I simple love leather and like to write and it had 400 lined pages in which to express myself.   A thick black bonded Italian leather journal from Barnes and Noble and handmade in Italy.  *sigh*

In honor of my blogovesary, I am having a couple giveaways just for my followers. I'm very thankful you all are interested in what I have to say, otherwise I'd be talking to myself.  Welcome to the newbies who have joined in the past year.  At some point, please take the time to introduce yourself, say hi, question me an answer or just say boo!  If there is anything you want to know about me, now if the time to ask. 

The first giveaway is for my top two personal cheerleaders who have stuck with me through thick and thin and provided me with unconditional support, no matter what direction I seem to go in.   I can't tell you all how much I appreciate you. Thank you, ladies for your unlimited support.

Staci at Life in the Thumb 

Candace at Beth Fish Reads

They will receive the Josephine Wall journal above along with

The Reading Woman


The second giveaway is the book of your choice from my 2010 book list, excluding e-books and class books.  You must already be a follower of my blog to win and there will be four winners in honor of my four years as a blogger.   Leave your name along with your email address and the book you would like to win in the comments.  The giveaway is open for U.S. Residents only and will close at 11:59 p.m. on April 3rd.  The winners will be picked by

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  ~Marcel Proust

Thank you to all my wonderful virtual friends, readers, followers, tweeters and lurkers. I appreciate you more than you can know.  Cheers to one more year!
